Mount Tamalpais

A few years ago, when I started teaching reduction linocut classes in the summer, I researched different artists who used this medium, and came across the work of Tom Killion. He makes beautiful multicoloured reduction linocuts in the Japanese style, of views of the Pacific coastline. They are remarkable examples of the process. I remember reading that he lived in the bay area, but I didn't know how closely he was associated with the area where we are staying this weekend. When we were in the bookstore in nearby Mill Valley yesterday, I saw a book of his prints of Mount Tamalpais -- which I can see from the window of our hotel!

Here is one of his views of the mountain. It's worth checking out his work on his website.
